VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.


Classic Car Overview

With its triple-white appearance, strong/trusty drivetrain, and overall sunny personality, this pristine 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible is always up for fun - which makes it one of the most desirable anytime classics out there for the money. America adopted the original VW as part of the counter-culture, but this one goes a bit more upper class in its appearance. Triple-white was a more expensive option only offered towards the end of the Beetles run (its even believed the last Beetle drop-top was triple-white.) So we love a significant car like this. The total presentation is quite complete, right down to the sport wheels. You can see in the pictures that there are areas that need improvement. But you also know from the market that this is offered at quite a value price. The idea is to have a car you can have fun with today, and have plenty of cash left over to make the enhancements and personal touches that you really want. Under the factory-correct white roof is the factory-correct white interior. So yes, the paint, top, and upholstery make this the ultra-desirable triple-white. These Super Beetles are great for having the upgraded dash layout, and this looks clean and smooth. Plus, high-back front bucket seats are all-day comfortable. There are some nice upgrades like the billet window cranks, modern stereo speakers, and an Alpine AM/FM/CD receiver. Youll still spot some areas you can improve, but we all know how there are a ton of catalogs/parts to really individualize these cars when even on a budget. And these VWs have a terrific reputation of sturdy components that are surprisingly easy to replace. And because the fundamentals are all there, day one will have you taking down the top, cranking up the music, and going for a fun ride. In fact, going for a ride is at the heart of this cars appeal. Power comes from the VWs sturdy 1600cc flat four, and this is a later fuel injection car. The motor was rebuilt within the last decade, and the quality of that investment is felt in the way this one fires up eagerly and runs strong. Its linked to the sturdy and versatile four-speed manual transmission, which allows you to get the most out of the motor. The Super Beetle also means an improved steering box, bigger brakes, and an updated front suspension. So for those who want to drive their classics, this is one of the nicest ways to experience a vintage drop-top VW. Complete with build receipts, this convertible is fun on day one. Plus, the pedigree and potential is irresistible. Call today!!!
